# This file is checked by crawlers only if installed at the root "/"
# of the website (it won't be read if you installed Savane in a
# subdirectory such as http://yoursite.tld/savane/), so paths in this
# file are relatives to the root of the website.

User-agent: *

# Disallow pages without indexable content
Disallow: /include/
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /siteadmin/

# Disallow login.php because everypage links to it with a 'uri='
# parameter - this generates lots of useless pages to index, and lots
# of traffic for nothing
Disallow: /account/login.php

# There's one page per user and it doesn't contain any indexable
# content - let's exclude it:
